*** I just noticed FB changed their customized URL rules; you no longer have to wait for 25 fans in order to customize the URL. It can be done as soon as you create the page...... YAY!!!!! :D ***
By the end of this tutorial you'll be able to go from www.facebook.com/pages/your-facebook-page-title/1234567891234 to www.facebook.com/yourfacebookpagetitle. You need at least 25 fans to be able to customize it. If you've customized it before, you will not be able to make new changes.
Very easy to follow and it's only 4 steps!
1. Log in to your Facebook account, then in a new browser window/tab, type in: www.facebook.com/username.
3. Once you pick the page you desire to work with; play around and try different shortened url names to find the one that works for you (the names need to be a minimum of five characters long).
*** IMPORTANT: Make sure to double check for any spelling errors before clicking 'Confirm', you WILL NOT be able to make changes afterwards. ***
4. Click 'Check Availability', if available you'll get a pop-up window with IMPORTANT information to remember. Once you read the small print and double check the custom link/url name you can click 'Confirm' and you're done.
You've just set a custom link/url for your Facebook fan page, congratulations!
